clinton in. he should be the mediator in this latest conflict. would israel or gaza welcome bill clinton? >> reporter: i've been saying that, actually, myself. i wrote a blog post on our "situation room" blog post months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't

about for a while that president obama named former president bill clinton as a special middle east envoy given his history with the israelis and palestinians. tony blair thought that was a pretty good idea if the president of the united states was inclined to do it, but let's see if anything gets off the ground as far as a cease-fire is concerned to begin with. natalie. >> it will be interesting to see if bill clinton got in the mix there. does israel fear recriminations, wolf, of a ground assault which it saw in 2008? >> israel is very worried about what would happen not only to its own troops, but what would happen in gaza because you go into a densely populated yak liar gaza and armored personnel carriers. it's going to be ugly. there's no doubt about that. they want to avoid it, at the same time they want to end these rockets and missiles coming into israel. it's not an easy decision for them, and i suspect there's a limited amount of time before the prime minister makes up his mind together with his cabinet what he is going to do. >> all right. wolf blitzer for us live many je
